One Spice, Two Spice, Old Spice, New Spice

As part of their "Health and Human Development" lessons in fifth grade, the boys in the 10-year-old's class receive a packet of hygiene goodies from Old Spice. Included in the gift bag is a sample stick of deoderant.

Dear lord.
Little boys should NOT be wearing Old Spice.

The kicker is:
Now that the 10-year-old is wearing his pit stick, the 13-year-old has suddenly remembered he's got a two-year-old sampler, too!


Yesterday, one of them was apparently leaning on my favorite "around the house" sweater while playing video games. I spent the evening smelling like a sailor on shore leave.

::snicker:: With daughters you get the baby powder scent pit sticks in sample sizes... :o)

Yea, not a big fan of the Old Spice. But, it could be worse. They could smell like BO.

That's worse, right?

Lemon Stand: I suppose with the baby powder scent, I also get pre-teen attitude and high pitched squealing? Hm... maybe I'll stick with the Old Spice and surly silence.

Priscilla: How right you are! The 10-year-old has a friend you can smell not just across the room but also long after he's left the house! Ack!

Last week one of our teacher's did a backpack check. Colognes etc are not allowed at school. I hear she threw away 10 cans of AXE. Ick.
